This place as well as the entire old city of Dresden is amazing. IT is beautiful at day and night.There is no doubt that Dresden is a must stop , while in Germany. I made a special trip all the way from Berlin and I am glad I did it.

Dresden did'nt appear to be so beautiful in my head. But to see by my own eyes, it is amazing. The scenery is unique. Hardly do you know a wonderful place to live like here

Do not miss anything! if possible, cover the Zwinger and the Albertinum in one day- may be economical with a day ticket, keep Residenceschloss for another whole day!

So much to see. We enjoyed the physics and mathematics museum particularly. Make sure to explore all the sections and the statue courtyard has some great photo ops.

Spend a half day here, you will not regret! Take good walking shoes. It is a good idea to walk on the walls that surround Zwinger. You will have a lovely view of the complex.

What a beautiful place to visit. There are 3 museums within this complex- an art gallery (paintings), a gallery of porcelain (procelain table ware, statutes etc) and a gallery of science instruments. I am most impressed by the procelelain gallery. Love the table wares for kings... so elegant! This place can take up half a day !

Superb selection of galleries - 3 separate collections - old master paintings, scientific instruments & time-pieces, and Meissen & oriental porcelain. We visited on a miserable wet day in August, and this gave us a wonderful opportunity to explore all 3 collections. Some world-class exhibits in all 3, all well presented and curated. Hard to imagine a better collection of... More

Had read about the Zwinger in books but had not anticipated it would be as large as it is. Lovely details on the buildings, statues and fountains. Look out for classical music concerts held in one of the buildings there.

This chateau-style gallery includes several exhibitions and museums. It's a good place to learn a few things about architecture, the Old Masters gallery is located here. Some parts are still under restoration.
